Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/6/2018, Location: Europe

On behalf of the licensees in production licence 199, Equinor has been given consent to drill exploration well 6406/2-9 S. The well is to be drilled to investigate a prospect named "Ragnfrid Nord", just south of the Kristin field in the central Norwegian Sea.

The geographical coordinates of the well will be:

64 48 18.22 N
06 26 51.08 E
Water depth at the site is 278 metres.

Drilling is scheduled to begin in early June 2018. It is estimated to last for 81 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

Well 6406/2-9 S will be drilled by the West Phoenix mobile drilling facility. This is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the Moss Maritim CS50 type, operated by North Atlantic Drilling.

West Phoenix was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in June 2008.
